Now, I have 1GB of RAM, which is more than enough to run a full desktop as well as Apache, MySQL, PHP etc…. on Linux of course. The system really hums now. I tried opening up Firefox, along with all of the open office applications, word processor, spreadsheet, presentation and database. Then I started using the Apache install on my laptop by running my local Joomla install and the memory didn’t go above 40%. All of this for $13NZD and a generic 512 RAM module from your local computer shop.
